I'm in my second trimester and really fancy a seafood noodle dish from my favourite Japanese take out for tea. It contains mussels, squid, prawn and scallop. Is this risky?

I personally wouldn't risk it. Sounds gorgeous though, and seriously wish we had such a thing as a Japanese take out round here! envy]
The most exotic take out round here is Indian (LOVE Indian takeaways but it's hardly uncommon smile

It is a lovely place bethcalavicci. I wait to stuff my face with all things seafood and lots of Brie. Mmmmmm roll on the due date........

I think ordering it from a takeaway where it's been festering for a while is a bad idea, but maybe going to a fishmonger and buying proper fresh ingredients and making it yourself if you really want it?
sounds like a lot of effort though!

What's the risk? It's all cooked isn't it?

I'd eat it, assuming they had a hygiene rating.

I'd eat it. Why would it be festering more in a takeaway than in a fishmongers?

I'd eat it. In fact... I may just eat it tonight wink

Ooo, where do I have to live to have a Japanese take away ?

Fwiw, i ate fishy supermarket sushi throughout both pg with no probs.

It's so tempting. I am pretty sure they are scrupulously clean, the seafood always seems very very fresh.

And seafood.

Look up their food hygiene rating.

Tbh, I stuck to the NHS banned advice, especially regarding listeria, but I didn't avoid any extras.

I've chickened out. I feel very disappointed. I hate the food part of being pregnant.

Im very jealous you have a Japanese takeaway!

I wouldn't have thought twice about wolfing that - yum!

I've eaten all of those things during this pregnancy but only from eateries I trust.

Very jealous you have a Japanese take out near you. grin

I ate boatloads of sashimi when pregnant with DS. Do it. Only thing that's ever made me ill is a veggie pasta dish from Old Orleans!

Binkybix Wed 02-Apr-14 20:09:37

I ate stuff like that all the time when pregnant smile
